Teach the stoplight with deep breathing. You’ve probably heard a lot about the power of deep breathing lately, and for good reason. When done properly, deep breathing can calm a child’s senses and help that child work through a frustrating event without resorting to screaming.

Aye, breathing right is so important! I've found it to be not just helpful for the kids with ADHD, but for those without too. The caveat is that this usually has to be done with as few external distractions as possible, to avoid breaking the child's consistency as they're inhaling and exhaling. Over time, when they get used to it, it becomes easier for them to block out "noise".

Just to share an anecdote, during the December holidays in 2018, I hosted a series of miniature painting workshops for my kids. Quite a few who attended had ADHD, so I taught them to recognise and replicate the consistent flow of breathing that they would have while painting. Now, during regular classes, should the kids act up or become overly excited, I would remind them to bring their breathing back to the state that they had while painting during the workshop. It works very well.

Help your child realize that working on his weaknesses and improving on his strengths can help him succeed. When he’s struggling, he can draw on the strategies he’s developed to manage his weaknesses.

One possibility for helping children to improve their wellbeing is letting them to attend therapeutic play session.

What is therapeutic play service?
therapeutic play service is a method of helping children with behaviour and emotional problems to help themselves. Play is the child’s natural medium of self expression - it’s essential for development. It is providing opportunity for the children to ‘play out ‘ their feelings and problems with a therapeutic objective.

Who is therapeutic play service intended for?
therapeutic play service is suitable to help children who have difficulties in emotions (e.g., express feelings), conduct (e.g., follows rules), hyperactivity (e.g., attention), and peer (e.g., relationship with others) issues.

I am a trainee therapeutic play practitioner and offering free services for kids. Anyone out there who is concerned that own kids have social,emotional and behavioural difficulties; I can send you the free screening test, then you fill up and send it back to me. I will share the results with you without obligation. It is up to decide whether you would like to try the therapeutic play service. Please pm me for more details. Thank you!

I apply this with myself too! Deep breathing has helped me a lot. Whenever I'm anxious about something or stress with some things, I do deep breathing and it works for me all the time. Deep breathing is extremely important for situations like this..

Maybe we are one of the many factors why our child tends to easily get frustrated. I admit that I have high hopes for my child, that I wanted him to excel in everything that he does. I am a stage parent to my offspring. But I have realized that I am doing things wrongfully. I am not letting my child enjoy his young age. So what I am doing, whether he is gettinga high or low score on his performance in school, I am still cheering him up and reminding him that he can do better next time.

My child used to be like this and I realised she expects a lot of herself, so I backed off in correcting her too much.

As for second one, she is still like this. Also will be angry when we help her to do things she cannot do. We just leave her to do things herself. Need to give more time when preparing to go out etc. Hahaha...
